Camping At Wanatee Park

Wanatee Park offers 69 campsites with a modern, state-of-the-art restroom and shower facility.  Campgrounds are usually open April 15 through late October, weather and ground conditions permitting. The Wanatee Park Campground is divided into two camping areas: A Loop and B Loop. 

A Loop (map) at Wanatee Park is the only family campground in the Linn County Park system that allows advanced reservations. To reserve a site, click here and select the campsite you are interested in. Reservations may only be made 4 days to 1 year in advance.

If you are wanting to camp less than 4 days out you will need to camp on a first-come, first-serve basis in an unreserved A Loop site or in the B Loop. B Loop sites are available entirely first-come, first-serve. There are two sanitary dumping stations nearby.
